Cool Heatsink replacement

Hey. Just finished getting all the parts I need to build my first desktop

I know the Stock Intel heatsink isn't really that good (or so i'm told) so I was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations? It will be used for gaming but I'm also working on a budget now so not the -best- but somewhere around there :P

Processor - Intel Core Duo E7200
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H

The XIGMATEK Rifle and Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme are very good also.
